About: Partnerships

Winckworth Sherwood is one of the few City law firms with a dedicated Partnership team. Our multi-disciplinary team spans our Employment, and Commercial and Corporate practices, combining the insights of our highly experienced lawyers to provide astute, pragmatic advice to LLPs, traditional partnerships and individual partners. We have significant expertise in advising leading partnerships on joint ventures and regulatory matters.

Typical clients include legal, accountancy, surveying, architectural, intellectual property, financial, hedge fund and private equity partnerships, and trading platforms.

From devising multi-million pound joint venture partnerships, designing LLP structures and drafting LLP agreements through to advising on partnership disputes and departures, our overriding aim is to provide advice that helps you protect your legal and commercial position – whether you are setting up a partnership, managing a departure, or are dealing with a dispute.

The team’s assured approach means we have a strong reputation for advising clients on issues including:

  • in the years of growth, covering all partnership, corporate, tax, employment, and property law needs
  • joining a partnership
  • contractual obligations and FCA regulatory matters
  • forced retirements and expulsions, often involving discrimination claims and whistleblowing
  • the partner’s duties and their restrictive covenants

Our expertise and reputation for getting the job done is reflected by the fact that much of our work is generated through referrals from existing clients.
